February 13, 2007 16:01 IST
The forensic examination of bones found near the house of Moninder Singh Pandher, one of the two accused in the Nithari serial killings, has revealed that the skeletal remains were those of four women, four male children and 11 female children.
Sources in the Central Bureau of Investigation's Special Crime team said the polygraph or lie detector test of Maya, a domestic help who earlier worked for Pandher, was 'inconclusive' and that she will have to undergo the test again.
They said that the forensic examination of skeletal remains, including 16 complete and three incomplete skulls, suggested that four of them were of adult females, an equal number of male children and the remaining were of girl children.
Apart from determining that four skeletal remains were of adult females, the approximate age of the other dead could not be ascertained so far, the sources said.
The skeletal remains have been shifted to the Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics at Hyderabad for DNA profiling.
